This photograph depicts a frontal view of a Petri dish culture plate, that contained a growth medium of Sabouraud dextrose and brain heart infusion (SabHI) agar, which had been inoculated with the fungus, Sporothrix schenckii, and incubated for an unknown time period, at a temperature at 20°C. S. schenckii is the causative agent for sporotrichosis, also know as rose handler’s disease. Found in sphagnum moss, hay, and in the soil, the organism enters the skin through small cuts or punctures from thorns, barbs, pine needles, or wires.
